A new book released in August 2018 from the Collaborative examines the connections and questions that arise from discussing math experiences in early childhood settings and the research into children's mathematical learning.
This bingo-like game allows children to think about numbers in different ways. It focuses children on the attribute of quantity of small sets and helps them build a more robust number sense.
This game played with a hula hoop and bean bags demonstrates all the math that can be explored with a simple tossing game. Each round gives children practice seeing and naming smaller parts of a total number in a variety of ways.
All members of a household have things in common and things that set them apart. Exploring the important ways that loved ones go together and what makes them unique involves both mathematical thinking and a…
Along with being "mathical" award winners, these books provide compelling contexts that help primary grade children understand why more advanced counting is useful and that it isn’t always efficient to count by ones.
Moving from one activity to another just got a lot more mathematical with this simple routine that builds early number sense with preschoolers.
Transition time is a great time for mathematizing a daily routine. This dot card transition is a relatively simple routine that builds number sense in a concrete way.
Sets are basic to children’s thinking and learning. They are also basic to our number system. One of the most important jobs of each number is to describe “how many” there are in a set of things. This module is a flexible set of materials that explore the foundational math topic known as sets.
In October of 2017, the Collaborative hosted Promising Math, a conference meant to link the research, practice, and policy arms of early mathematics. This forum is a furthering of the mission of that event, with the goal to extend the thinking and learning that took place.
The Mathical Book Prize is an annual award organized by the Mathematical Sciences Research Institute (MSRI). With an aim to "inspire a love of mathematics in the everyday world in children of all ages," the winners…
